Lindsay Lohan’s missing jewels from magazine shoot actually worth $400,000


I don’t give Lindsay Lohan credit for much, but I’ll give her credit for this: she is good at garnering a wide variety of publicity. Just when the eating disorder/skin and bones thing has run its course, she starts hooking up with Samantha Ronson again. Or at least makes it look that way. Once we’re sorta past that, Lohan gets everyone talking about the whole “Is she/isn’t she drinking again” bit. Now that we’re done with a solid five days of gossip about that, Lindsay’s decided to really ratchet up the publicity – by presumably stealing $400,000 worth of jewelry.

Yesterday we told you how Lohan was accused of pilfering $49,000 worth of jewels from a magazine photo shoot after openly admiring them and asking to be given them several times. Not surprisingly, when the staffers balked, Lohan just took them. Well, that’s the presumption anyway, since she has a long history of taking expensive things that don’t belong to her.

Now People is confirming that the jewelry is actually worth a whopping $400,000, Lohan is indeed under investigation – as is everyone else at the Elle UK shoot, though I bet that’s just a formality.

She may have been the last one seen wearing them, but did Lindsay Lohan steal $400,000 worth of Dior jewels from her Elle photoshoot? Under investigation by Scotland Yard, the disappearance of a set of diamond earrings and a necklace was reported on June 8. The baubles were on loan for a June 6 magazine shoot.

“We inquired and everyone from the shoot is being questioned,” Lohan’s rep tells PEOPLE. “Hair, make up, stylist … even photographers. Lindsay hopes they find the jewels. She is happy to cooperate.”

A police spokeswoman tells PEOPLE, “Westminster Police are investigating an allegation of theft of jewelry from studios in Brewery Road in Islington. The theft was reported to a central London police station on the eighth of June after earrings and a necklace, believed to be diamond and estimated to be worth $400,000, were found to be missing approximately two days earlier.”

She adds: “Inquiries are continuing and no arrests have been made. As far as who we will be interviewing – we will be speaking to a number of people in connection with the inquiry and don’t discuss the identity of the people we are planning to interview.”

Meanwhile, a spokeswoman for Elle U.K. released a statement exonerating the 22-year-old star. “I can confirm on behalf of Elle magazine, that items of jewelry went missing from an Elle photoshoot … and the matter is now being investigated by the police,” she states. “Elle has no reason to believe that Lindsay Lohan was in any way responsible and has no further comment to make.”

Yesterday I mentioned that “I dunno anything about it” has worked as a sufficient defense for Lohan in the past, helping her get away with tens of thousands of dollars of stolen loot, including items pilfered from Louis Vuitton for a photo shoot. I’m guessing that in L.A. and New York the cops didn’t make these cases a big priority and they just ran out of steam. And obviously they do have better things to do. But I really hope the Brits take Lohan down. I don’t think she has regular old shoplifters’ issues like Winona Ryder. I think she’s just flat-out entitled. What Lindsay Lohan wants, Lindsay Lohan gets. Plain and simple.

I wonder if the upgrade in value from $49,000 to $400,000 makes Lindsay a bit more nervous. I doubt it would have made any difference to Lohan – if she wants something, she wants something. But I’m guessing that she could be charged with a much more serious crime based on the value. I’m still voting for hard labor. Though I think for Lindsay, that might mean a photo shoot without cigarette breaks.

    “Lohan Story”

    LOL! Love it.

  2. Lem says:

    it’s really a shame she did this in the UK and not say N. Korea.

  3. dew says:

    I wouldn’t be shocked at all if she stole the jewels. But with her history, and her asking if she could have the jewels before they disappeared, I think it’s just as likely as someone else there thinking it was a perfect opportunity to snag them because everyone would naturally think of Lindsey.

    But even though she’d make a perfect scape goat, my money’s on her actually being the jewel thief.

  4. Sauronsarmy says:

    Lem: LOL that was great.

    Elle is stupid for hiring her. I just don’t understand why this girls is still relevant.

  5. dokilis says:

    Why would it even be worth it to steal something like that? Obviously they’re very recognizable and since she’s followed by the media all the time, she’d be photographed with the stolen merchandise. What’s the point of having them if you can’t wear them?

    I kinda wonder if this one’s gonna show up on “America’s Dumbest Criminals”…

  6. Sauronsarmy says:

    The thing is, is this isn’t the first time she’s stolen. Remember that fur coat she took? Yeah.

  7. the original kate says:

    even her stomach looks dirty.

  8. Ellie says:

    That guy in the background sure is diggin’ that picture.

  9. Neelyo says:

    Throw the book at her! She’s had far too many chances and hasn’t learned a thing obviously.

  10. Eileen Yover says:

    Isn’t she the chick who stole that fur coat from the girl who’s dead granma gave it to her? Then the girl complained it was Lindsay and it was magically returned annonomously.
    I agree with Jaybird-she thinks she intitled to everything she wants.

  11. Blondie says:

    Course she took them, she wanted them, took them, will deny it forever … remember Lohan is a celebrity and can do and say and act as she likes because she is above the law …(sic)… sad that this is too true & no doubt she’ll get away with it.

  12. Blondie says:

    & this girl looks so much older than she is! (Not in a good way!)

  13. Nony says:

    Please please please let Scotland Yard find evidence against her. She would _not_ get away with it this time, and god, it would be amusing watching her discover that.

  14. Ned says:

    Vegas girls have taken over Hollywood.

    No more beautiful, intelligent and classy actress. Nicole Kidman was the last of that kind.

    Now we have trashy, tattooed, stoned unattractive “starlets”.

    Those women cannot act, have no grace or dignity and are mainly good at garnering publicity for off screen behavior.

    Paris Hilton, Angelina Jolie, Lindsay Lohan, Megan Fox.
    They are all more famous for their publicied acts of “private lives”.

    Hollywood has gone Vegas.

  15. Linda says:

    Drug habits are expensive, just because you are a celebrity doesn’t mean you will not lower yourself to stealing to pay for the habit. Lohan is an easy target in this one – past history, hasn’t worked in awhile, addiction problems and still living a very expensive lifestyle.

  16. Anoneemouse says:

    Mirror Mirror on the wall – whose the skankiest one of all? ME ME ME ITS ALL ABOUT ME ALL THE TIME

    She’s her own best fan. Get over yourself Lindsay. Even with heavy meakeup and fake hair you look like a skank.

    p.s.: You’re not sexy at all either.

  17. Ally says:

    Hopefully she’s dumb enough to try to leave the country with them, then they can find the jewelry at the airport, and arrest her on all kinds of charges.

    Tattoos do not equal trashy. That kind of blanket statement is total bullshit.

    Anyhoo… I hope Britain’s five-oh throw the book at her!!

  20. We need to collectively gather funds and buy what we’ll call “Lohan Island” and ship the whole family off. Imagine that as a reality show! HAHA

  21. CeeJay says:

    “Tattoos do not equal trashy”

    Well, if you’ve tramp stamped above your ass or put 56 stars on your face they do!!!

  22. Bodhi says:

    No they don’t. The person they may be adorning may quite well be trashy, but tattoos themselves sure as hell aren’t!

  23. Magsy says:

    I’ve always thought that Lindsay’s eyes and Sam’s eyes look like they’re heroin addicts. Lindsay is stoned in most of her pictures.

    give the girl a break – what’s she ever done to you?
